Keyboard Shortcut Question

Keyboard Shortcut Question
I like to use keyboard shortcuts in GIMP to select different tools or to nudge an image, but I frequently click on the layers window, which causes keyboard shortcut commands to then be directed to the layers window. So whenever I click to select a different layer or do anything with layers, afterwards I always have to have to click on the image window again to regain use of my editing keyboard shortcuts. Because of this, I also often forget that layers window has focus and end up messing up my layers with key-shortcut commands intended for the image window. Is there some change I can make to my workflow or keyboard bindings to avoid this problem?

RE: Keyboard Shortcut Question
I don't think you need more keyboard bindings. Get in the habit of using the existing ones to select layers and act on them, and checking which layer is active by looking at the bottom of the image window.
